Ernest Clark, former band director at Lake Jackson Intermediate School for many years and an outstanding instrument repairman has passed away. Ernest was a great band director, a wonderful person, an amazing instrument repairman, and a good friend. He was 96 years old, and he had stories that spanned generations. He loved repairing instruments and every time I took my instruments to him, I learned things by watching him work and listening to him explain how he did everything. He was one of the most meticulous craftsmen I have ever been around. I am sure the first thing Ernest will do when he gets to heaven is overhaul Gabrielís trumpet. Rest in the Peace of the Lord, Ernest. You Have been a good friend for many years and you will be missed by many. We lost another great one.
